no previous part Part 1 of WOODWORKING ON A GRAND SCALE series no next part

I ran across this article in the Daily Mail UK and I thought a lot of woodworkers would appreciate seeing this extraordinary work. I’m not thinking so much about the wood materials or the techniques, but more about the planning, research and knowledge necessary to accomplish such a high degree of exactness. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
